Head to the north parking lot, where the spot of home plate in the old Mile High Stadium/Bears Stadium is marked. It’s easy to miss unless you are looking for it! Take a swing at home plate and think of all the great baseball players who had stood at this very spot over the years – Mickey Mantle, Andre Dawson, Barry Larkin, Barry Bonds, and more. The Broncos called Mile High Stadium home from their beginning in the AFL in 1960 until 2000. The Bears, who changed their name to the Zephyrs in 1985, continued to play in the stadium that bore their name until 1992 when the franchise was moved to New Orleans. The move was precipitated by the awarding of a Major League Baseball franchise to the city of Denver, and in 1993 the Colorado Rockies season opened in Mile High. The team played the 1993 and 1994 seasons in Mile High setting MLB attendance records while Coors Field was being constructed in downtown Denver.
There was not anything at all special here. It took a while to find and was just a painted on home plate. Kind of cool?
Easy to miss is an understatement. We drove around and didn't find it. It was cool seeing the stadium but directions for this need to be a bit more detailed.
